Segun Adewale has mourned the death of Barrister Kole Ajayi.
Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate for the Ekiti state governorship election, Segun Adewale has described the death of Barrister Kole Ajayi as a rude shock and frightening. Ajayi, until his death on Friday (May 18), is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and contested the ticket of the party for the July 14 governorship election, which Kayode Fayemi won after party’s primary.
Adewale while paying his last respect to the deceased in a condolence message on Saturday (May 19) described the transition of Ajayi as “sad and painful”, adding that the state has been denied the services and potentials of a committed and dedicated politician.
He said: “It’s terrible to hear about the demise of Barrister (Ajayi) and I express my sincere sympathy to the family, his party (APC) and state as a whole.”
“I offer you (family) my thoughts, prayers and supports during this dark moment in your life. I hope that God brings the family the much-needed peace during this sad time. My condolences for this irreparable loss,” Adewale added.
Adewale who’s popularly known as “OSAPraPra” in the state, urged Ajayi’s family, friend, associates and Ekiti State University Alumni to honour his memory, by continually upholding the values of honesty and accountability, which served as his reference point throughout his time on Earth. Segun Adewale also suspended his campaign activities for this weekend as a mark of honour for the deceased.
